ECET 3500 Survey of Electric Machines

Prerequisite: ECET 2111


This introductory course in the characteristics and applications of basic electric machinery will begin with a review of magnetic circuits and transformers. Single-phase, three-phase, autotransformers, instrument transformers and buck-boost transformers will be covered. Three-phase and single-phase induction motors, synchronous motors and synchronous generator, dc motors and dc generators will also be included. The laboratory exercises will involve operating and testing transformers and machines to determine their operating characteristics. Among these characteristics will be the efficiency and voltage regulation as determined by direct and indirect methods.
